Big Mama Shakes
Big Mama Shakes
"Southern Americana Rock" band, Big Mama Shakes, wants nothing more than to push the envelope down a flight of stairs. Formed in August 2013, playing in Williamsburg and Richmond, VA, they show their original style and bring back an old sound in a way all ages can enjoy. With influences such as Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, and Bruce Springsteen, in May 2015, they presented their debut album "As She Does". Following the release of the album, they played along side huge names including: Dirty Heads, Passion Pit, Incubus, Nathaniel Rateliff, and more. They announced a two-week long east coast tour through the east coast. Then, continued to play multiple festivals for the duration of the summer. Their new EP "If I Try" is now available on iTunes. Between stepping into the studio to work on brand new music and playing non-stop shows, the group stays busy. Five ruckus gentlemen make up Big Mama Shakes.
The North Country
The North Country
The North Country is a musical collective fronted by Andrew Grossman and featuring some of the finest musicians in DC.

Compelling songwriting and tasteful musicianship are the pillars on which The North Country stands. Over the band’s four years in Washington, DC’s freshly reborn DIY scene they’ve forged a reputation for colorful and raucous shows. Drawing initially from roots Americana music, The North Country take things a step further, weaving a vivid web of psychedelic tones and colors into their sound that are both distinct and invitingly familiar.

In an age of disposable music The North Country are built to last, with rich musical and lyrical ideas wrapped up in catchy melodies. Lead singer and songwriter, Andrew Grossman, elaborates, "I think disposability is something that we unfortunately value in our culture today. A lot of the things we consume reflect this; it’s meant to be used once then thrown away. A lot of music I believe is made in this way as well. I don’t ever want to make something that’s disposable. I want all of our music to be something that someone would want to listen to over and over again and form a relationship with."

As big believers that context shapes content, The North Country are happy to have their roots planted in DC’s vibrant DIY scene. The band draws much of their creative mojo from the Bathtub Republic, the house venue, artist collective, and general epicenter of DC freakdom that band calls home base.
